    As I and Nitronaught too well know, helis can indeed be very frustrating, especially at first.

    I imagine the learning curve is easy compared to other air vehicles. Ever try to fly something like an MSR? That is what I learned to fly on and from what I have seen and experienced the Quad is a piece of cake to fly compared to the MSR.

    It may be easy for an experienced flyer but tricky for a new comer.

    For some reason I find it more easy to control my MSR than my quads when it comes to turning. But taking off with a quad is way more simple.

    If they don't fly right out of the box even someone with experience has there hands full, there is a sheet included with the QR1 that states in large type " PLEASE READ" and I very highly recommend you go through the reset procedure before you even try to fly at all. Mine out of the box was difficult to control, definitely not normal. After performing the reset it is perfect, does exactly what you command and nothing else. Before the reset that was not the case so this is for you guys that may not know what they should act like....

    Lets just say I went through rotor blades like breathing air!!!

    But, I also went through a few parts on my first Nitro RC like it was going out of style too!!!
    Definitely not so much and nowhere near as serious these days :COOL:

    You do realise that it has a gyro in it and it only spins certain blades based on how it is held right.........?

    You'll have a blast with it, I ran 8 batteries through mine this afternoon outdoors in a light breeze, did a few 360's forward and sideways. They happen so fast I can't really see it happen but it does lol. Fast little bird, it cruises right along. No complaints, it's been great so far....

    @ G-Rustler - How's the repairs going man? You know a couple co-works have them on order because of you! Better get to fixing it. Let us know how it's coming.

    This is how I got comfortable with mine without any damage. I started with input sensitivities set low-about 25 to begin. Get directly behind the copter-pointing directly away from you. Gently lift off with throttle only-up just off the floor. Cut throttle if drifting/rotating and set down. Do the accelerometer reset if movement is severe. Gently lift off again. Trim for any drifting or rotating as necessary. Repeat the low liftoffs and trims a few times. You can quickly get them to lift almost vertically. Then practice just doing a stable hover and gradually add forward/backwards and lateral movements. I did this in a very small room without breaking any props. Once you rotate the copter where you are not directly behind it, control inputs get complicated quickly. EDIT-be sure to but battery in fully each time (it will affect balance) and even the power wire position can have effect on movement so try to position it the same each time.
